Hello everyone! I am so happy to have Niki from My Scandinavian Home with us today for Furniture Friday! Niki is inspired by all things Scandinavian and her blog is a wonderful illustration of this. With interiors to drool over her beautifully simple blog is always full of interesting posts and inspiring images. I am constantly discovering new designers, homes and stylists and highly recommend you all stop by and enjoy this fantastic blog. Thanks Niki!
I was truly honoured when Anna asked me to write a guest post about my favourite piece of furniture on Canoe Design. But honestly, where to start? There are so many absolutely FAB newsworthy pieces out there?!
In the end I went for the Tolix Model A Chair. Why? Firstly it has withstood the test of time (it dates back to 1934) and is now enjoying a wonderful revival in fresh colours. And secondly, I absolutely love me a little industrial design and no chairs add an industrial feel to a room like a Tolix!
If I had my pick (yes please!) I would definitely go vintage - I looooove rusty, authentic looking Tolix chairs in galvanised silver. However, I also wouldn't say no to a very cool shiny new sunny yellow one or maybe the 'rouge glacis' hue to add a pop of colour to my dining area while keeping in step with my grey and white colour scheme.
Yes they may get a little uncomfy over lengthy dinner parties, but beauty is pain people, beauty is pain! In any case, you could always add a cushion (my answer to everything).
So I say, merci to the French for this wonderful piece of furniture and Vive la Tolix A model chair! Have a lovely weekend!
